“Good Food, Pathetic Service”
Reviewed 21 September 2010

I went to tikka freaks with 3 of my friends a couple of days ago.
The first impression of the seating are is that its is small, congested but well decorated nonetheless.

But thats where the good part ends.. We had to sit on a table that had not been cleared.. It took the "waiter" 10 minutes and 3 repeated requests from our side. to clear the table..! YEAH 10 MINUTES..!

The "waiter" looked like someone who delivers chai in offices. At a restaurant you would expect waiters to be dressed properly.. this chai wallah was wearing an insulting tshirt .. saying "i googled your brain once and it returned.. sorry no results found".. what the hell.. ure supposed to serve people..

Anyways. . we ordered a full Masala Chicken and Paneer Butter Masala. "waiter" asked us if we want it with bones or boneless. so we said.. with bones.. and we reminded him twice that we wanted it with bones.. ( with boneless .. they often tend to reduce the quantity )..

Then we asked for water.. he gave us four plastic disposable glasses... wtf?.. DISPOSABLE GLASSES?

preparation time was less.. our order came in 5-8 minutes.. but what the hell.. its boneless chicken.. ! Now the waiter has disappeared.. after waiting 3-4 minute for him.. i go to the cashier.. i see the waiter . and complain it to him..

At first guy refuses that he took our order.!!! Then he said we had ordered boneless..!! Then after i ask him to take it back and cancel the order.. guy says hes sorry.. he had forgot ..!!

Consider this.. : he had 2 tables to wait..!

Atleast the food is good.. Not excpetional .. but very well cooked..

Then we ask him to get u s3 rotis. guy gets 2... and disappears.. after 3 minutes.. we tell him to bring one more.. as we had asked three .. i dont know what he heard.. but he bought us 3 more.. so the 2 extra went cold before we could eat them...
By now it is clear to us that he is a dumb a** and so we repeat all orders twice..!

Then at the end.. i ask for fingerbowl.. but they dont have it.. he says that you can wash your hands outside in the next lane.. in a small washbasin..!

Bill comes in as a printed slip..as it is.. not in any leather wallet or whatever..!

Not surprisingly we decide not to leave a single rupee as a tip.!

Pros : Food was well cooked and seemed fresh
Cons : Do u really need to hear more..?
Verdict : Good food, Overpriced for the quality of service
Avg. meal for two : 300-400
Suggested Dish : Methi Chicken
